The cover image shows the view from North Pearl Street in Ellensburg, Washington, looking south toward the business district, circa 1914. Two large houses on the right belonged to the John Davidson family and the G. E. Dickson family. The two-story brick building in the center was the Antlers Hotel, formerly the Horton Hotel, which was built in 1889. At the end of Pearl Street on the left can be seen the two towers of the Davidson and Kreidel Buildings. The Fitterer family home was located on the southeast corner of Pearl and Eighth Streets.
